Yesterday we looked at the slightly smaller Lawnflite Pro GTS600L Petrol Chipper-Shredder, today we are looking at a petrol Chipper with more capabilities all around.
A friend of mine recently purchased a petrol Chipper/shredder combination and he was saying how useful it was for the garden. He used to remove trailer loads of garden rubbish from this garden that was costly and time-consuming. But now with the help of a petrol Chipper, he is able to chip and shred all his garden pruning’s and turn them into valuable garden compost or mulch.
Personally, I prefer to compost the chippings for a year or so and then use the compost for mulch in the wintertime. I have noticed huge improvements from composting on a regular basis, especially in heavy clay soils, the results really are amazing. I can now turn the soil in the middle of winter whereas just a few years ago before I had composted the area, this wasn’t possible.
Lawnflite Pro GTS900L Petrol Chipper-Shredder
Now getting back to the Lawnflite Pro GTS900L Petrol Chipper-Shredder. As you can see from the above having a petrol Chipper-shredder can bring huge benefits to your garden.
The Lawnflite Pro GTS900L Petrol Chipper-Shredder is powered by a Loncin G270 which develops 9 hp. The engine is a 270 cc model that makes the most of overhead valve technology, which in turn brings low vibration levels, fuel economy and a significant cut in noise levels.
A dual-stage air filter and cast-iron cylinder liner combine to give the engine long life and maximise reliability and durability. It is of utmost importance that the air cleaner is cleaned on a regular basis. Failure to do this can result in more efficiency and dramatically shorten engine life.
The engine comes with an oil protection system which will turn the engine off should it run low on oil. I always like to check the oil on a daily basis just to make sure that all is well. However, this is definitely a peace of mind feature!
I always advise people to make sure they keep the oil clean in an engine, in other words, change the oil on a regular basis. It’s far simpler and cheaper to carry out basic maintenance which will prolong the life of your engine. Always refer to the manufacturers manual for the service schedule.
Loncin started making engines and motorcycles in 1993 and have quickly moved into making small engines for generators, water pumps and more. Today you can find many Loncin engines that power small equipment.
With a powerful 9 hp engine, the Lawnflite Pro GTS900L Petrol Chipper-Shredder is able to handle branches up to 80 mm in diameter. With the efficient drum and blade chipping system, the Chipper can quickly dispose of branches and prunings.
The emergency stop system brings a user peace of mind when it comes to user safety. There is a large stop switch which will turn everything off instantly should the need arise. The automatic feed system keeps branches moving quickly, in other words, the chipper will pull the branch into the blades automatically. This is a very time-saving feature.
The large rubber tyres and transport handle enable the machine to be moved around the garden and moved from site to site efficiently.
